The design, fabrication, and characterization of a 500-GHz electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) based heterodyne receiver array is presented. The array contained seven planar dipole antennas that were photolithographically defined on a common 20-$mu$m-thick quartz substrate. Each antenna incorporated a Schottky diode and was connected to coplanar transmission lines that conveyed the down-converted 500-GHz signals to detectors. The quartz substrate was backed by a silicon EBG woodpile structure, which reduced antenna crosstalk and increased directivity. An off-axis parabolic mirror completed the beam-forming network.
